Death Cult for Cuties

Alternative Armies’ sci-fi death cult paints up great. All right, smart boys, so it’s actually the Post-Apocalyptic warband (HOFP05).  In the House of Wargaming, we treat them as cultists.  Look at them robes and death masks and heads on pikes – what else could they be? Vince Venturella over...

Rogue Stars – Gauntlet

 When old Andrea Sfiligoi tells you that a game is built for four to six models, he means it! Tried running a gauntlet style run of five figs through a field controlled by ten figs, and it took a long time.  Each character in Rogue Stars, is characterized by...

Eye Candy

Not a lot to say here.  I snatched a bunch of screencaps from recent videos posted up at the YouTube channel, Joy of Wargaming.  Full battle reports are available there.  For those who lack the patience for such things, here’s a brief rundown of the action so far, with...

Alternative Sci-Fi Pulp Adventure Armies Figures

Here’s a quick line-up of a nice batch of pulp sci-fi figures, ready for the table. Including a few civilian types, to help flesh out the space station. Still trying to work out the best way to grab photos using my cell phone....

A Heavy Dose of 15mm Sci-Fi Fun

The Alternative-Armies great big sci-fi-stravaganza has added a whole lot of fun to my collection.  Before, I had at least one of everything that I needed.  Now, I’ve got all sorts of options, and if my Void Pirate early plays are any indication, they will be put to good use. ...

Adventures of the Blackraven

The first game of the Adventures of the Blackraven has come and gone. In this project, I used the campaign tables from Five Parsecs from Home to generate the quartet of space faring ne’er-do-wells plying the shipping and smuggling routes way out on the fringes.  Once I had personalities...

Space Station Gallery

For those of you who prefer still life to video life, here’s a shot of La Tortugastra, still a work in progress.  I’ve got a few more terrain items to slap down, and the walls are looking pretty bare to this day.  Needs more travel posters, artwork, graffitti, and...

More Details on The Turtle Station

Coupla quick shots today showing some details of the wild and wooly landing bay 1-2-3 for the space port.  That planter is just shown for scale.  Barrels are wooden dowel cut to size, the boxes are balsa cut to size.  Both have been tapped with bits of cereal box...

Tortugastra Interior Decorating Start

My 15mm space station nears completion.  Of sorts.  This is the sort of project that begs for little details.  Take a look at the bar and lounge area shown here.  It’s ready for gaming with all the final cover in place and painted, but it still needs some curtains...

WIP: Tortugastra

My sci-fi boys have been warring over the same stretch of suburban ground for years.  They deserve a proper star-faring battleground.  To that end, I have been slapping glue, foamcore, and paint around the kitchen table for a while. Just a sneak peek at my own personal wretched hive,...
